Possible Malware in Email ?

Today I received an email from tgcginc.com. I decided to open it and the body was blank. I googled tgcginc and it may be a phising scam. When you type tgcginc.com you cannot connect to a website.

Should I be concerned about malware, etc ? The email had no attachments, and as stated, the body of the email was completely blank. A Kaspersky scan of my computer was negative but I could not scan the email itself. I deleted the email.

Thanks for your replies.

(I use Yahoo email)
